Vote for me on Big Blog Exchange 2014

The moment I learned about Big Blog Exchange, I was immediately afflicted with wanderlust. I like going out of my way to travel somewhere to get a good photograph and try new different things. I will go on any trip so long as time and money will allow.

BBE is a once in a life time opportunity and I know that trying and failing is a hundred times better than never trying at all, so I clicked the sign up button and created my profile. With this whole Big Blog Exchange experience, I can do the 3 things I am very much interested with, things I am passionate about 1.) to travel 2.) to take photos 3.) to represent my country, Philippines. I never thought that it is possible to do these things altogether in one adventure. My sappy idealist self gets to shiver with delight whenever I see the little photo of mine above with the Philippine flag over my heart.

I have always wanted to someday be given the chance to travel the world, not for pleasure, but on a mission and not as a tourist but as a traveler. I want to see the world and make it a better place to live in at the same time. I’m not quite sure how to do that, I am not Mother Theresa, or Nelson Mandela, or any great person in the world, but I have a passion for taking meaningful photos and inspiring my wonderful readers.

I felt as if I was on a spiritual back-packing trip through life the time when I left home. I love that I am a new person now. I love getting this second chance to completely rebuild myself, and to see what I am really all about, far away from what I was expected to be in my old life. Traveling in some parts of the Philippines made me realized that there is home in everywhere. And this blog, Chasing Adventure is where I share my home with.

I consider myself pretty well-traveled for someone my age, not with the number of places I have visited but with the experiences I have gained. I still want to go out somewhere far and wide, understand and adopt different cultures, make small talks yet deep conversations with strangers, get lost in a foreign land, eat where the locals eat, explore the other side of the world with my camera, try things I haven’t tried (i.e riding a plane, going outside the country) and learn more things about living and discover more about myself. I want to get myself loose in that adventure!

Kitchen Adventure: Shrimp in A Butter-Tomato Sauce

When I’m trying to eat real food from weekdays of too much fastfood, I would prepare something on rare weekend were I have no where to go. Since this week, my cousins and I had no plans going out, I just stayed at home watching movies and preparing any food I could make. My favorite dish I have prepared this week by far is Shrimp in A Butter-Tomato Sauce. Here’s how from Food.com.



 

The Field Trip Project - Tagaytay, Cavite

I finally had the chance to go back to Tagaytay yesterday. My cousins and I had an whole day on the road exploring the city. It has always been my favorite place whenever I am looking for a whiff of refreshing country air near Manila. We had sumptuous lunch in Leslie’s Restaurant, it’s one of the recommended places to eat, especially those who are craving for Bulalo. What I like the most about the food place is that the lake and the volcano can be viewed from the viewing platforms along the ridge.

It was quite chilly, it was nice to range freely with the outstanding scenery surrounding us and just savor the breezy afternoon and take pictures.



 

MNL 143: Manhattan, Cubao

Ever since our cousin, Ysabella moved to the Philippines to study here from New York, my cousins and I would find time to see her. My sister, Joyce, who is currently staying with her in her dorm near school used to notice her being lethargy, lack of focus and sometimes staring at no where. Although we know her for being a very optimistic girl, she must’ve been homesick. In fact, I completely understand her because I was exactly like that once, on my first few months in this city. I was unsociable and painfully shy, but in some situations I sense that it was more resistance than shyness. I would isolate myself from people because I felt I was different and they didn’t like me. I didn’t want to change, in the name of being true to myself thinking it was everyone’s job to adapt to me, and that it was their loss if they didn’t. And always I felt lonely because nobody “got” me.

I always have this ‘Ate’ figure to younger people who I go with, so I feel the need to make her comfortable while in the Philippines. I don’t want Ysabella to feel isolated, so to keep her at ease, and make her feel that we are all here for her, we would all meet at our cousin’s condo in Cubao every weekend to accompany her.

Last Saturday, we spent most of the day taking pictures, strolling in the neighborhood and the neighboring malls, eating in a karinderia, playing billiards in the Clubhouse and simply goofing around with each other. Nonetheless, I felt so glad that at least we could make her feel at home. I am positive that soon she will have such a blast living here.

The #fromwhereistand Collection

I desire to explore every museum, climb every mountain, camp in every island, swim every ocean, eat where the locals eat, take the road that are less traveled and lose myself in the adventure. I intend to travel the Philippines with my semi-broken camera and I am on my way.

This collection was unconsciously planned and did not originally exists. However, upon discovery of how many feet shots I have in my iphone, taken during my travels, I decided to compile them all in another instagram: alwaysbelooking. Different places, different adventures, one feet shot at a time.
